      89% Tomatometer 9 Reviews Throughout her ground-breaking career, Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq has always had an intimate relationship with the Nuna--the Land--a living, breathing organism present in her improvised performances. Hers is a voice that, according to the New York Times, "demands full attention, whether she's whispering in her softest register or howling at the sky." Ever Deadly weaves together intimate concert footage of Tagaq alongside moving personal reflections, stunning sequences filmed in Nunavut, and hand-drawn animation by Inuk artist Shuvinai Ashoona to seamlessly bridge history, landscapes, stories, and songs with pain, anger, and triumph--all through the expressions of one of the most innovative musical performers of our time.

      Radheyan Simonpillai Globe and Mail The doc is a lot like the outfit Tagaq is wearing at the live concert it repeatedly returns to. It’s a dress covered in glass scales, catching in its reflections the world surrounding Tagaq. Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Wade Major FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) One of those films I started off hating and wound up loving. That doesn't happen often. Feb 1, 2024 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh TheArtsStl Tagaq views her art, and her identity, as bound up with the land, so it’s not surprising that she feels strongly about maintaining traditions and repelling the attempts of outsiders who want to impose suburban rules on a much older way of life. Rated: 6/10 Jan 2, 2024 Full Review Luke Gorham In Review Online There’s a great film that could be made about Tagaq, one that more elegantly centers her and her artistry within a larger socio-political discourse...[leveraging] the alternately primal and sensual viscerality of her work to more impressively filmic ends. Nov 13, 2023 Full Review Paul Dika Exclaim! Ever Deadly is an emotional and engaging snapshot of Tagaq's career up to this point. Rated: 8/10 Jan 30, 2023 Full Review Chris Knight National Post Everything ties together. When Tagaq is interviewed on a barren, rocky and mosquito-infested shore, her love of this place in the Far North shines through in everything she says. Rated: 3/5 Jan 20, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
